Pastrana Single Vineyard Manzanilla Pasada Palomino

I am not a Sherry fan, but this oxidized Manzanilla had a nice nutty flavor that went well with Cabot Clothbound Cheddar from Vermont’s Jasper Hill Farm. — 9 months ago

Clos de los Siete Malbec Blend 2018

Delectable Wine

The 2018 Clos De Los Siete combines grapes from a large property of the same name in Campo de los Andes, Uco Valley in a blend of 55% Malbec, 19% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Syrah, 2% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. The assemblage here is made by Michel Rolland and his team, 70% of which is aged in up to 1/3 use French barrels. Dense, dark violet in color. The nose is complex in the Bordelais style, presenting aromas of plum, blackcurrant and blackberry with hints of blueberry, oak and herbs. The 2018 is free-flowing on the palate with good energy and volume. It's mild tannins still have enough energy to lend shape and intense flavor. An interesting, potent wine. Drink in two years.

Wellington 20 Years VOS Palo Cortado Sanlúcar de Barrameda Palomino Fino

Da bomb, for sherry lovers: Palo Cortado versión. A shape shifter on the palate & ringing on the higher registers, this Hidalgo checks all the boxes for me, which includes a lightness & freshness heaven made for most food. Burnt pine cone & toffee bits, a subtle mushroom thing (oyster?), & a rather trim beef bouillon broth lurking on the back end. That may all be bs but it’s a wine that inspires….. — 2 years ago

La Panesa Fino Especial Jerez-Xérès-Sherry Palomino Fino

A very unusual Fino, aged in the solera system for an average of 15 years (much longer than most Finos, closer to an Amontillado). Deep golden color. Elegant nose with yeasty and nutty aromas. Intense on the palate. Almonds, bitter notes. Long finish — 2 years ago

Estrella Malbec 1994

Delectable Wine

The 1994 Malbec Estrella, from Luján de Cuyo, was aged for 16 years in old foudres and bottled in 2010. Garnet in color with a brick-dust sheen. The bouquet offers aromas of licorice, camphor, black olives, dried flowers and dates. Complex and silky in the mouth, it has developed well. The tannins are rounded and polished, resulting in a gentle texture. Delivers mild flavors but plenty of nuance. (Joaquín Hidalgo, Vinous, January 2023) — 8 months ago

Pulenta Estate

X Gran Malbec 2018

Delectable Wine

The 2018 Gran Malbec from Los Árboles, Uco Valley was aged for 12 months in 10% new French barrels. A dense purple in the glass, the nose offers notes of plum, violet, country herbs and sour cherry against a backdrop of sweet spices and other woody aromas. Indulgent initially, it’s juicy and fleshy in the mouth, gaining in freshness and fruity flavor as the channeled flow progresses. Long-lasting with a bold finish, fresh plum aromas linger at the back of the throat. A delicious wine. (Joaquín Hidalgo, Vinous, November 2021)
